Years ago, I knit an Irish Flag pillow for my Irish fiance. Now that spring is on the horizon, I started thinking about all of the luck that I've had this year, and luck of course got me thinking about leprechauns and leprechauns about St. Patrick's Day.
I have found knitting patterns for almost every holiday imaginable. Why should St. Patrick's day be any different? Have fun checking out the following St. Patrick's Day inspired knitting patterns.

Some of these knitting patterns are based on St. Patrick's country of origin more than his saint's day. I haven't even scratched the surface of knitting patterns that are from Ireland or based in Irish crafts, merely looking for patterns that call themselves Irish.

This pattern search was previously published on Sqiudoo, however with the migration of Sqiudoo to Hubpages at the end of 2014 some of the pattern searches don't work for Hubpages's model. I have reposted the former lens/hub here. All the research finding the free knitting patterns is my own and I wrote all of the descriptions of the patterns unless otherwise noted. Please let me know if any of the links are broken, I am working on migrating multiple pattern searches over here at once.
